The glass replica light bulb, which is a monument to the great invention, will no longer be lit with an array of incandescent bulb, as these are seen to be too costly to run, as well as harmful to the environment due to their inefficiency. Instead, LED light bulbs will illuminate the bulb, lasting up to 25 times longer than their outdated predecessors and making the new wave of lighting technology that was sparked by Edison himself.
In welcoming a new form of innovation and technology into a famous old monument such as this, the technology world has emphasised just how important the LED will continue to be for the world. Now used in thousands of homes and businesses, as well as being utilised by governments all over the world for public buildings and outdoor areas, the LED is the cutting-edge of lighting technology and has become one of the most popular and efficient ways to illuminate any space.
The bulbs are often chosen for their efficiency, but their aesthetics should not be overlooked. Monuments are often lit up to highlight their splendour, and the right lights must be chosen for the job to ensure the attraction looks its very best. The move to switch to LEDs is not only a ringing endorsement of the bulbs’ efficiency and green credentials, they are also a nod to how beautifully they light up a space that will be looked upon by thousands of tourists and local residents.
Renovation of the tower and the monument hasn’t just stopped with the replacement of light bulbs. In the spirit of truly bringing the attraction into the 21stcentury, the tower’s sound system, which used to play music from a phonograph, will be fitted with top-of-the-range mp3 technology.
